I love the toe box on this model, but lacks the cushion the previous models have had , especially in the front of the shoe. My feet end up hurting at the end of the day. In previous models they did not.
I don't know what Asics is doing to their shoes, but every pair I have bought in the last 5 years have killed my feet. I was so excited that these shoes were going to have a larger toe box and they do, but the middle and back of shoe by the heel is so tight. It feels like my foot is being crushed because it is so tight. I tried walking around with the laces not tied and they are still super tight. There is no cushion. It feels like I am walking on cement. I will be returning these shoes.
I have been wearing ASICS for walking/running for years. They have been the best fitting shoes for me until this pair. I bought the same size as my previous pairs, at least 4, yet they don’t seem to be built as tall as the others. They feel tight on the tops of me feet and it’s not how tight the laces are tied, even with the laces pulled as loose as they go the shoe still feels tight on the tops of my feet. I love everything else about these shoes but I’m not sure I will be able to wear them for my upcoming half marathon as planned.
I've been buying, wearing and running the Gel-Nimbus line into the ground for the past bazillion years. They've always fit to a T! Very comfy, great support, I've been extremely happy. I do notice this latest version seems a little "thin". Maybe it'll grow on me after I log in a few more extreme runs. But the first 20 have just been - meh.
Over the (MANY years I’ve worn Nimbus, I’ve found “Same Size Nimbus, Same Color, runs DIFFERENT depending on where made (ie: Nimbus made in China might run “normal ASICS size”, while Nimbus made in Indonesia or Vietnam runs 1/2 size smaller.
I bought this 1 week ago and the shoes are pretty ( I’m very picky ) and the fit is perfect ( size 5 ) but most of all the cushioning and comfort are amazing!!! My husband and I both have the Nimbus 17,18,20 . We only buy the nimbus and we are glad we get to try the latest one!
GEL-Nimbus have been my go-to shoes for years. The GEL-Nimbus 21 just didn't impress me. They didn't give the same spring or bounce- "walking on clouds" feel that other GEL-Nimbus versions gave. Personally, they feel a bit tight on my toes. I am also unimpressed with the color selection. I'll hold onto mine, for now, hoping I will like them a little more after a few long distance runs.
The cushioning around the ankle is pretty comfortable and I haven't experienced any pain after runs yet.
I have been wearing Gel-Nimbus for years and was so disappointed when the 20 came out...no cushion anymore and a tight toe box. I have been anxiously awaiting the 21 version and I was so thrilled that they listened, and made some changes. Great bounce, and plenty of toe room. I don’t feel that these run small, but everyone is different. My only complaint now is color choice....a little bland for my taste, but I’m loving them anyway!!
Every year I hope with fingers crossed that ASICS will make the Nimbus fit great like the Nimbus 12s. Every year I’m disappointed. I’ve even tried this new one going up in size and still the shoe is uncomfortably tight in the toe box. Maybe 2020 will be the year.
Just received the new women Gel Nimbus 21 and was disappointed that the new 21 runs small. I have been wearing size 8-1/2 in the gel nimbus for the last ten years and when I tried the new one on, it is too short so will return and order the same shoe for the next size up.
